The NQF INCLUSIVE project is reaching its final phase. The two year EU funded project started in October 2009 and will hold its final conference on 8 September 2011 in Gleisdorf, Austria. During the conference the outcomes of the project will be presented by the partners.
The overall aim of the project is the development of an accreditation model and certificate for non-formal education. It will be of a lower level than the existing vocational trainings/apprenticeships and developed in accordance with the European and the National Qualification Frameworks (EQF / NQF).
The final results will include a catalogue of standards, based on a former project ‘Happy farm’, which includes a model for the classification of learning results, an examination and certification procedure, and a template of a certificate.
The catalogue of standards, together with the learning outcomes of the qualification programs for Austrian confectioners, Danish cooks and Maltese health and social carers at level 1 and 2 of the NQF will be published as a handbook (limited editions). All results and additional project information will be presented on a CD-ROM. From October 2011 on, all project results will also be available under www.nqfinclusive.org.
The results will be presented during the different national conferences in Gleisdorf Austria on the 8th of September 2011, in Stockholm on the 29th of August 2011 and in Paola, Malta at the end of September 2011.
In the third E-Newsletter of the project, which will be disseminated in July, the state of play of the project and the results of the pilots will be presented, together with the announcements of the closing conferences .
